projecting terminals
Explanation:
Almost certainly a typo for "borne" (Thanks, Kashew). En saillie is the opposite of "affleurie" (flush), ie they are sticking up proud of the surface. Other alternatives: "not flush", "jutting", "sticking out", "standing proud", etc.

  -> Well, maybe, but given that the application is (I think) for some electrical gizmo, "borne" is more likely.
